Paper credentials are seldom as useful in the real world as experience and common sense...NY is full of waiters with advanced degrees and as is clearly evident in the teaching profession, the paper does not matter when compared to results.

Very well stated Jim. :)

Would it be a fair statement that you do not believe the Holocost occurred? After all, you were not there.

To quote Godwin's Law: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches."

no need to go this direction in a discussion about audio/science/evidence...

No problem. I'll change my example to the moon landing. The point being, of course, that no matter how "overwhelming" the evidence in a case might be, a determined, clever skeptic can poke holes in it. As it turns out this happens frequently in audio discussions. I suspect that you, as a student, must have run across the philosophy that nothing can be proven.
